Perfect Holiday Home
Fantastic pool & jacuzzi, very well equipped, clean house. Close to restaurants & grocery stores as we sometimes cooked at home. Really looking forward to our next trip to Florida Palms

Disappointing stay with a disappointing owner
We stayed here for five weeks and what you see on the pictures may have been the villa when this was refurbished at the time but is not the case to date, The owner john is very unprofessional and I would save your money and book elsewhere. The property description and photos he has on offers 4 sunloungers for the pool area and what was actually there was a dirty lounge area with a old rattan carpet down that was fraying and dirty with four rusted and broken metal reclining chairs that was unusable and dangerous. John’s option to rectify this situation was to offer four cheap air beds with a pump that he expected you to use instead of loungers and when weather is in the 30,s each day you expect to enjoy the sun on what he advertises and when you have two people in their 70’s travelling with you I do not expect them To crawl down on a filthy floor to lie on cheap plastic air beds. The villa itself is now dated and needs tlc and the owner needs lessons in customer service as what he’s charging is not what your getting in anyway at all. His management company is professional and helpful but unfortunately once john the owner has your money he’s interested in nothing else. We have owned villas ourselves in Davenport and stayed in many around the Florida area and the excuses he used is not acceptable and not professional at all. There is a lot better out there so be careful when making your decision

With respect we haven’t been allowed in the country for 2 years due to usa government rules, unfortunately I wasn’t aware of the state of the pool furniture, previous guest the week before did not say anything and the management conpany didn’t inform me either. These people are being pedantic, once I was made aware of the situation I ordered new loungers and explained that there was a delay, everyone quotes covid for everything you order, the air beds were a stop gap, something to lie on around the pool. I got the offending furniture removed immediately. I did everything I possibly could for them, but nothing was ever enough, they damaged the waste disposal, toilets, closet doors. There is always one pain in the butt renter and they were it, if things are so bad, why are all my previous reviews so good?

Maravilhosa!!!
This house is very good for the whole family, everyone loved it, it has an amazing pool and a sensational whirlpool. John is very attentive and helpful as are Perry and Tarlena. We've even booked another Host's house for the end of the trip!!! We really appreciate the cleanliness and it was certainly spotless!

We had a great time at our rental. Everything was as expected. House was very clean plenty of towels and everyday items you would expect. Pool heat was perfect. No issues getting in and out of house or gated complex. Would definitely stay again.

Nice floor plan for multiple adults
Communication with property manager was the best I have experienced. Prior to occupancy, all information was given clearly and on a timely manner. Property clean and 2 master bedrooms worked well for our family. Rented during Covid-19 shutdown. Stores and delivery restaurants nearby, easy access to supplies as needed. The pool/hut tub area clean and well maintained.

AMAZING!!!
I just want to take the time to extend how thankful we are to the owner (John B.) for making our stay in his home a very pleasant one. It felt like home away from home! Everything we needed to make our stay more comfortable and convenient was available/provided. The attention to detail and decor in the home was just simply beautiful. I have nothing but good things to say both about the villa and the great customer service I received from John. Any questions and/or concerns we had were addressed/answered promptly. I have already recommended this villa to some friends and family and will continue to do so. We look forward to staying there again in a near future!

2nd visit in 12 months
We just returned from our second trip to Florida in 12 months and couldn't think of anywhere better to stay than this villa! Upon arrival it felt like our second home, everyone instantly walked off to their bedrooms to drop their bags and unpack their things for the two week stay. The villa had recently been given a fresh lick of paint so everything was sparkling that little bit more than our previous visit. The BBQ grill had sadly been removed because visitors kept abusing it and leaving it in a poor condition, but it was great to see that the owner took our feedback on board and made a change to rectify the concerns raised on our previous trip. The villa is about 20 mins from the Disney parks and perfectly situated near a long road of shops, restaurants, and fuel stations. You basically have everything you could need within a 5-10 mile radius of the villa. The two villas next to this one were both empty (again) so there was no noise around the pool area. We often woke up at sunrise and had a relaxing swim around the pool with only the sound of bugs chirping in the background. A truly amazing holiday and we are already considering a 3rd stay!
